busy and buddies.

So remember when I talked about how proud I was of myself for cleaning my room back in this post? Well... that didn't last long. Because of the new placement of my desk, everything piled into that area cause it's pretty out of the way. So now I have friends coming in town tonight, and I put it off until today to clean that area... again... and my closet area... and take out the trash... OH! And dishes. So yeah, working on getting all of that figured out! Actually, I'm still in the midst of it, but I figured I would take a break and tell you about my ridiculously busy day!

Things I have to do today(in no particular order):

1. Memorize "I Remember" By: Steven Sondheim, from the musical Evening Primrose, for seminar tonight.
2. Sing at seminar, Jack might go... PRESSURE! ha...
3. Go to a track meeting, but not track, because I have too much to do today... luckily, Coach understands my busy schedule, and gives me some grace.
4. Clean room... workin on that one. =/
5. Still have to hand out some Paideia shirts! Remember those? They came in yesterday!
Woo hoo! So we passed them out, and now we have like... 4 left? Yeah, pretty sweet!
6. 4 of my bestest friends are coming to visit me tonight! (They're the only reason my room is being cleaned) And I'm super excited! But, have to entertain them in the mean time! =/
7. Floor meeting, that I think is going on while my friends are here... awesome. Hopefully short and sweet.
8. Taking the DM kids out on the town! Woo! Wednesday nights in Decorah... how fun. If I haven't told you, at Luther we don't have "Thirsty Thursday" we have "Wasted Wednesday". So people go to Americana and karaoke, and have fun! AND it's the last wednesday that people will be able to go out! So there should be lots of people! I'm excited to take them out!

busy busy busy
But it's all good! Some stressful stuff mixed in with just enough fun stuff! Woo!

phones and friends.

Today is going to be a good day, minus the rude awakening I had this morning...
And the 4 hour drive home.
But other than that it can't be anything but AMAZING! =D

I'm gettin one of these...
And I'm SUPER excited about it.

I get to go to her* graduation party...

And she's like my little sister, and I haven't seen her in FOREVER.

And I get to go to her graduation party with her**.
I'm pretty stoked.

Des Moines, here I come!

*Kelsey- Best friend (one of many), our nickname that we acquired is "Else" aka the four letters that we share in both our names.
**Rachenda- yet another best friend. She's spunky and fun and I miss her lots ever since college! So excited to see her!

school or summer?

Sometimes you can really get too much of a good thing.
Currently, I am SICK of Luther College.
I love the people, but I live with them 24/7(for the most part).
I love the campus, but it's located in a tiny town(and I'm a city girl at heart).
I love the classes, but currently I have 2 papers due (and have a few 8 o'clocks that I may or may not have slept through... more than once).
I love track, but I have been working out for it since... october? (holy crap).

So, as you might be able to tell from my little rant, I am just worn out.

i am ready for summer!

It's nice to have something to look forward to.
It'll be a nice change of pace getting back home and not having to worry about school for a while!
Des Moines...
here I come!

in 2-ish weeks. Ugh.

mondays and moods.

I'm pretty sure this is the best Monday ever!
(knock on wood)
It's only 9:30 am and I'm already having a wonderful day.
Here's why...
  1. I woke up in plenty of time to be presentable* for class, and wasn't falling asleep in class! It was one of those days where I woke up completely rejuvenated (which is a rarity now-a-days) and it was so nice!
  2. I get to meet Jack's mom today! She's in town to help Jack's sister to move to a house somewhere north? of Decorah and is visiting Jack in the meantime, so I'll get to meet her at some point! (This is exciting because she lives in Oregon, so I was worried that I might NEVER meet her)
  3. Track practice tonight shouldn't be too bad! My coach sent me the game plan for today last night in an email, and I'm feelin pretty positive about the practice, and am getting pumped for the dual against Wartburg(our arch rival) on Thursday!
  4. I HAVE CHEERLEADING TRY OUTS TONIGHT!! I am so excited! We had a clinic thing on thursday where we got scored on tumbling and stunting which went really well. And the cheer and fight song are going to be judged tonight, so I'm pretty excited!! =]
  5. Cinnamon Roll for breakfast... enough said.
  6. Paideia lecture= NO CLASS... muahaha!
  7. Talked to some good friends from home (Rachenda and E-Loser) and they are gonna come visit me before school gets out! =D
  8. I just got an email from my Mom via FB that said that me and my sister get iPhone's as soon as I get in town! We've been planning with my Mom to get new phones for awhile now, but weren't expecting to be getting them until like... August when a bunch of our plans ended. So not only are we probably getting them THIS weekend, but we get to keep our numbers, and I'm PUMPED. AH!

So you can just imagine how effin happy I have been today. And all before 10 am! AH!
Good start to a pretty hectic week. Maybe it won't be as hectic as I thought! Let's pray that things don't take a turn for the worse!

* Sweatshirt, hair not looking a wreck, and JEANS! =D

Listening to- SWITCHFOOT, all of it. Ah gooood stuff
